      CWM Recovery doesn’t require any specific version of Android Firmware. Feel free to install it on your LG Lucid ICS, it should work fine.

        THE LG lucid’s ICS bootloader (4.0.4 is Locked, and will cause a ‘Security Error’ on the device. You need to downgrade to Gingerbread (2.3) in oreder to use the Custom ROms and recoveries

        • Usually, a custom recovery works regardless of what version the user is running on his device. If it’s about bootloader, then it should be unlocked to be able to flash a recovery.

          Thanks for the tip!
